expired. the chair recognizes the gentleman from oregon, mr. blumenauer, for five minutes. mr. blumenauer: the mall shooting that might have been worse and ended in newtown, connecticut, where it's impossible to imagine that it was worse. it's part of an ongoing pattern of carnage because we lose one life to gun violence every 20 minutes, every hour, every day. the mass murders reclaiming my time page gets the country's attention, but the same total loss of life at sandy hook happens more than twice every day all year long. this is personal for me, not just because the mall shooter was in my district, but i had a high school friend who was killed with a random freak drive-by shooting, my brother took his life with a handgun as a young man. i supported gun provisions at the state and federal level at every opportunity. it might be different now. not just because the horrific image of parade of funerals for children, i submit mayor bloomberg's advocacy for gun safety and mayors who brare the brunt of the gun violence. i welcome the president's leadership and will support any reform that he
that my colleague from oregon was discussing earlier. that if you have a phrase in the law and it's been interpreted by a secret court and the interpretation is secret, then you really don't know what the law means. the fisa court is a judicial body established by congress to consider requests for surveillance made under the fisa amendments act, but almost without exception, it's decisions including significant legal interpretations of the statute remain highly classified. they remain secret. i'm going to put up this chart just to emphasize that this is a big deal. here in america, if the law makes a reference to what the boundary is, we should understand so it can be debated. if the court reaches an interpretation that congress is uncomfortable, we should change that. but of course we can't change that not knowing what the interpretation is because the interpretation is secret. so we are certainly constrained from having the type of debate that our nation was founded on, an open discussion of issues. now, these are issues that can be addressed without in any way compromising the nationa

beyond 9:50 a.m. the chair recognizes the gentleman from oregon, mr. blumenauer, for five minutes. mr. blumenauer: thank you, mr. speaker. congress is here on new year's eve with the people they love. themselves, the special interests and the policies of the past. the overhyped fiscal cliff may well be upon us and we will find $600 billion of deficit reduction with tax increases and spending cuts, and then there will be the howls that we're doing it too abruptly from the same people that demand the same system of expiring cuts and sequestration in the first place. make no mistake, there will be some real damage. we'll be squeezing some people who deserve far better. then we'll be scrambling to find the -- refine budget reductions in a way that makes sense. in the hours, days, weeks ahead, we'll get a semi balanced small agreement. very likely, struggling throughout the new congress with budget bluster, especially in the house, moving from crisis to deadline to showdown. it's ironic because it doesn't need to be this hard. we could use the pressure and revenue from expiring temporary t
in here. but still a number of rivers across portions of oregon and into california, they are looking at readings that will be, all right, it looks like we have a little difficulty taking place here. but right now we have some of that moisture aimed at the west coast. as a result, we could see a couple more inches of rain. take a look at this. the rain falls from san francisco to portland, into seattle. portland, we have pictures coming out of this region over the last 24 hours. they're looking at a kim more inches of rainfall before it's all said and done. they had a boulder fall on the highway from florence to eugene, oregon. took a couple hours. now, this tree landed on the home. we don't have the reports of injuries or damage there. then, christine, zoraida, looks like for places like chicago, they're expecting those temperatures to drop from the 60s into the 30s. now it looks like winter is going to arrive. >> in chicago she's been enjoying the weather. >> the winter in chicago lasts so long. once it comes it's there till may. >> yes. >> thanks, karen. >>> new twists in the where
oregon, mr. defazio, for five minutes. mr. defazio: well, yesterday the republicans released a vague press release saying it constituted a counteroffer to the president's road map to avoid driving over the fiscal cliff. now, the republican plan purports to cut $1.3 trillion and raise $800 billion in new revenues. it did contain four specifics. four. cut medicare specific number one. $600 billion. cut medicaid, pays for nursing homes for seniors, of course. priority number two. three, cut the adequate cola for seniors on social security. even though 40% of seniors depend principally or totally upon social security and the cola already underestimated inflation particularly for medicare, essentials they need. cut that. not a driver of the deficit but, hey, cut that. one more specific. preserve the bush-era tax rates for income over $250,000. it's not a tax increase for everybody who earns over $250,000. it's only the income over $250,000 that would get additional taxes if the bush-era rates went away and the president's proposal was passed. but, no, they want to preserve -- totally pres
from oregon is on the floor also. as we talk about the deficit, it has taken center stage right now, we want to highlight one very clear thing -- social security has not contributed, is not part of and never will contribute to the deficit. so those that like to mettle in it and way to combine it into this deficit talk are just playing games with our seniors and disabled in this country. it is a separate issue. it is not impacting the federal deficit and it should be not -- and i know some like to meld it in because they want to talk about cuts, and their favorite line is privatize, which really means seniors and disabled get a lot less in the future. they will not get the guarantee that they paid into. also, i want to give credit to congressman ted deutsch who has a similar measure on the house side. both of our plans we know may be difficult to pass but we're going to continue to push forward on it. we won't be alone. a coalition of over 300 national and state organizations have already endorsed our bill. together, they represent 50 million americans. they are on board because this bil
the gentleman from oregon, mr. blumenauer, for five minutes. mr. blumenauer: thank you, mr. speaker. it's difficult to focus on the task at hand in the aftermath of a shooting rampage in my district yesterday. with at least 10,000 people in a shopping mall, a young man allegedly and some eyewitnesses with body armor and semi-automatic weapon discharged 60 shots or more. there were two people killed and a young 15-year-old girl seriously wounded. mr. speaker, one is haunted by these events. we had one in aurora, colorado, at the theater where there was 12 people killed, 60 wounded. six people killed at the seek temple this summer. we had an horrific episode earlier in my congressional career in springfield, oregon. it's hard to have meaningful conversations in a variety of subjects. i was going to deal with that problem with the fiscal cliff today, but gun violence is another area in america where it seems we can't have a discussion without delusional claims of overreach and taking away hunting rifles. congress won't even allow statistics on gun violence to be gathered, and we certainly
and tomorrow hammering the west coast, especially from the bay area all the way up to the oregon border and into the mountains going to see significant rainfall. and that could lead to mud slides, and also some localized flooding. so it could potentially be dangerous just to be out on the roads. and also you have to count in too there is going to be strong winds. and once again, there could be more power outages. back to you. >> chris warren from the weather channel, chris, thank you. >>> back to politics now. time now for one more helping of trail mix. and we're letting this one go to pot. as in weed. so if you're someone who is prone to the munchies, so to speak, this story may be of interest to you there is a new poll out. it shows for the first time ever an even split amongst americans about whether marijuana should be legal. 47% of 47%. not exactly an even split there is the 3% on either side there. it seems rather dubious i suppose. speaking of dubious, congress on the brink of being branded as the least productive governing body to oversee our country since the 1940s. the last ti
